Brighton, Watford target Alberth Elis: Now it's time to move to England

Boavista striker Alberth Elis says he's prepared to leave his Portuguese club this summer.

The Honduras international has been linked with Premier League clubs Brighton and Watford.

Elis told HSI TV: "I always had the dream of playing in Europe and I did it. Now I have to take another leap and fulfill the dream of playing in England.

"I know many Hondurans want to see me play in England, so do I, but now I'm focused on recovering so to play in the Gold Cup.

"I've followed the English League since I was a kid and I like the football they play there, because it's open, fast and strong, but if I have to play in France, Spain or Germany, I'll be prepared."

Elis' deal with Boavista runs to 2024.
